industry, you have people who don't support what you are doing or say is this something that was garnering publicity for the pageant or something like that is correct but i think the good quote weighs the bad, and for every 99 positive messages, you have one person who, you know, is a naysayer. you can't listen to them. you know, it's my life. it's my body. it's my decision. >> all right. so you did not get miss america, but you will be deemed miss courageous. what is next for you as you finish out your reign as miss d.c., correct? >> i mean, i'm just incredibly happy to be back here in washington, to be able to represent, you know, one of the most amazing cities in the world, to be miss d.c. was an honor in and of itself. you know, it was never the miss america crown that i really sought after. it was being able to promote my platform on a national level, to have this message about women's health care be spread, and i think i've done that, and i'm very proud of my accomplishments, and i'm just glad to be back in d.c. and, you know, who knows where or what's next? >> an inspiration and an example for young women all around.
